9:xx is under 10 min/mile and 10:xx is equal to (when xx is zero) or
over 10 min/mile.

Neither. A 10 minute mile is running a mile in ten minutes. If it was a 10:10
mile, then it would be a mile in ten minutes and ten seconds.
Keep asking those easy questions.

A 10 minute mile is 10:00/mile.

For the few who know. I know you have never seen such a succinct answer
from the Oz. It is possible.

Two of the many reasons I live behind the screen on rec.running. Where else
would someone come thinking that they're seeking help on a running problem
and find their soul.

Thanks for sharing your hearts and humor. When it comes to brains, remember
that the brain is a secondary organ...no more/no less important than every
one of our other internal organs.  The brain would have you think
differently.  The heart, lungs,  kidneys, liver and all the organs know
they're just as important. They're there for the overall "full catastrophe
living" that Zorba speaks about.  I run so that thinking won't get in the
way of my living life fully.

All of these organs in unison also agree that the*** is important.  They
once embarassed the*** by saying just those words "You're nothing by an
***!."  And the*** in embarassment and shame shut up for five days.
It's a system, a ***y system!  They work as one to keep the body running
so that the mind can keep running. "The body runs the mind so the mind can
keep running." Oz

These electrons when taken to you delivered at the speed of the winged
Mercury and where your eyes are touched by Hermes,...the messenger, the
trickster...who knows what you get?   But as a marathoner, I do know that
"when you work your fingers to the bone, all you get are bony fingers."

Aw, I was sort of looking forward to the ontological discussion on how
the different units of time measurement came to be.

I sometimes wonder if the GAPO is actually a figment of the collective consciousness of
r.r. Or a mass hallucination caused by too much lactic acid.

To set the record straight, in 1963 I was in my 3rd year at Villanova,
having just pronounced my solemn vows...poverty, chastity and obedience to
the Order of Hermits of St. Augustine.  I was scrupulous, wondering if I
had made bad confessions because of....ah....impure throughts.  It was not
until 1967 in Washington DC that I experienced the....ah....high of
*** sativa.

While the acronym of GAPO by Steve aids in the illusion from behind the
screen, I can only smile and remember that it was a signal to a friend or
to oneself that you were going to be shot down talking with the chicks
because of GAPO...Gorilla Arm Pit Odor.
